Upon plugging it in, I went to the settings screen in OpenELEC and entered in my wireless networking information. I rebooted for good measure and went to system information and found that it had no IP address. After verifying my wireless settings and rebooting once more, I still wasn't connected.
I tried a boatload of things, including installing RaspBian, RaspBMC, different versions of OpenELEC, various command line voodoo, disabling Wifi authentication, etc. None of this worked until I used a powered USB hub, and then it connected automagically. I was simultaneously relieved and frustrated when it worked. Relieved because it finally worked, frustrated because I spent so much time with it.
Now, several people have said that this doesn't need a powered hub for the Pi- which is actually why I bought it. My personal experience was that it did. I have seen things from other people about having to change their power supply to make Wifi adapters work on the pi - I didn't have another to use. Just keep that in mind that if you have trouble, try a powered USB hub before you tear your hair out.
With the Wifi now running properly, I took the Pi to my upstairs bedroom and set it up. I had previously verified that 1080p movies on the wired LAN ran without jitter or buffering. Playing with it on wireless, I found that I had to set my video streams to transcode to 1mbps 720p in order to stream without buffering. I was just happy that it was working, so I was OK with the quality drop.Read more ›
I tried the Edimax with my laptop which has no problem connecting when downstairs but in the bedroom it keeps loosing the signal intermittently. My laptop has Windows 7 installed.
I tried it with my second laptop which is an IBM Thinkpad with Ubuntu 12.04 installed. The speed I was getting downstairs was 12 Mbps which I thought was not bad but upstairs the speed dropped to barely 2 Mbps and sometimes no signal
I decided to return it and selected another adapter TP-Link TL-WN722N which worked like a charm on all my machines.
If you will be using the unit in the same room as the router be it Linux or Windows, this will work for you but if the router and the unit are at a distance, particularly on different floors you will have issues.
The main reason for poor performance could be attributed to the unit being very tiny and the built-in antenna is not powerful enough for it to work at a fair distance from router particularly if there are walls and floors in the way.
Also I used Speedtest to confirm that my network speed was unchanged from my wired connection. I get >20Mbps through Comcast and this adapter has no problem passing that on to my PC wirelessly.
